The Ashes continues and Caspius is plunged ever further into despair by the underwhelming performance of England, but with Gamescom on the horizon, the prospect of new video game news lifts his flagging spirits–and even Nintendo is trying to help!
After last week’s reminder of the historically bad takes which have come from Caspius, the panel discusses other past ‘temporary errors of judgement’ about games which are now regarded as pinnacles of the medium, including F.F. VII and Chrono Trigger.
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and KillswitchTool cover the announcement of the PlayStation 4, though details about the nature of the system seem hard to come by–especially in the wake of Sony’s pre-planned, two-hour-long, highly-scripted, marketing blitzkrieg.
Duke Nukem proves to be legendary vaporware but a not-so-legendary game, Bobby Kotick proves to be a legendary whore, and Japan maintains its place for legendary weirdness.
On FRIDAY, Bup and SiliconNooB adopt a DRILLING, intellectual approach in their investigation of the latest industry news. The result, which is sure to be a WHEEZE, covers topics including Duke Nukem Forever, the Nintendo 3DS, and GeoHot in South America.
